Janet du Preez
Janet is a very versatile leadership development practitioner with strong business acumen; a passionate, provocative and creative thinker who is at her best partnering with courageous leaders to co-create thriving 21st Century organisations. She is constantly alert for good people, good ideas and good systems which can be made even more effective.
Currently completing an MSc in the Management of Innovation and Technology and with a background in health sciences, psychology and business, Janet is uniquely qualified to understand people and the practical systems which underlie behaviour and outcomes. Her broad-based work experience includes leading in governmental, non-profit and volunteer organisations, small, medium and corporate businesses, service and trade enterprises, retail, financial and medical industries. As a result, the perspective which she brings to senior leadership training, facilitation, coaching and consulting is systemic, practical and focused on sustainable application.
Against the background of this diverse business experience, Janet has developed a particular interest in enabling the growth and effectiveness of leaders. She emphatically believes that business is about people and that leaders are responsible for creating organisations that inspire people and enable them to deliver optimally. Janet’s insight into individual and organisational change extends beyond static models and frames and she uses her well-honed coaching, facilitation, process development and strategic consulting skills to engage talent, passion, insight and action in pursuit of great leadership, meaningful interaction, effective systems and strategic effectiveness.
